Thomas Mann (born June 6, 1875, Lübeck, Germany; died August 12, 1955, Zurich) was a German novelist, short story writer and essayist. In 1929, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, primarily in recognition of his masterpiece, the epic realist novel Buddenbrooks. The Nobel presenter praised Mann for having "reconciled the loftiness of poetry and the intellect with a yearning love for the human and for the simple life."[1]
